    Q: What is a domain name?
    What is a domain name?

    A: A domain name is a unique name used to identify and locate computers on the Internet. A domain name provides an easy-to-remember Internet address, which computers translate into numeric IP (Internet Protocol) addresses used by the Internet. An IP address like 216.205.67.185 is good for computers but difficult for humans to remember. But humans can easily remember a domain name like WahmShoppes.com in http://www.WahmShoppes.com.
